The Oklahoma City Ballet Yvonne Chouteau School is the official school of Oklahoma City Ballet and Oklahoma’s only American Ballet Theatre® Certified School. The school offers classes for students ranging from age three to adult and from beginner to advanced in a disciplined yet nurturing environment. Sharing our facility with a professional company enriches each student’s experience by allowing them to observe those dancers in classes, rehearsals, and performances, in addition to offering opportunities to perform with Oklahoma City Ballet in productions such as The Nutcracker presented by Devon Energy.
Our ballet instructors are certified in the American Ballet Theatre® National Training Curriculum, which embraces sound movement principles and incorporates the best of the French, Italian and Russian training methods. Our ballet classes are accompanied by professional pianists and conducted in a safe and supportive atmosphere that fosters proper technique and development of confidence, poise, coordination, and personal well being.
The Oklahoma City Ballet Yvonne Chouteau School has three divisions:
Classes for children ages 3 – 11 that provide a sound technical foundation while fostering a joy of movement.
Classes for the more serious student that might be interested in pursuing a professional career in dance. In these levels, students are expected to attend more classes, train on pointe, and develop the discipline expected of professional dancers.
Open dance classes for teens and adults available on a drop-in basis; no enrollment required.
